How to Make Broccoli Egg Bites

 Step 1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Prepare the muffin pan by greasing it with olive oil or using a non-stick cooking spray. Shred the cheddar cheese.

Step 2. Chop the broccoli into small bites. Remember that these are going into mini muffin/bite sized portions.

Chopping the broccoli into very small pieces will ensure that you get enough delicious broccoli into each bite.

Step 3. Afterward, add the eggs, whisk them. Then, add in broccoli and seasonings into a large bowl.

Step 4. Mix all of the ingredients except the cheddar cheese. Using a whisk here will be best for light and fluffy bites. The whisk helps create natural air bubbles that add to the texture of the bite.

Step 5. Make sure that you have greased the pan even if you are using a non-stick pan. You want the bites to pop out very easily.

Now, pour the mixture into the mini muffin pan. A small measuring spoon will help assure that each bite is the same size. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the bites so that each bite is covered equally.

Step 6. Bake the bites for 12-15 minutes or until the eggs are completely cooked. They should be firm and not liquid anymore.

Remove the egg bites from the oven. Allow the mini muffins to cool completely before trying to remove them from the pan. They will fall apart if you try to remove them too quickly.

How Do You Keep Egg Bites from Sticking?

You really want to avoid the egg bites from falling apart after you’ve put in the work to make them. Again, using the right non-stick mini muffin pan will be helpful here.

Using a spray will also prevent the egg bites from sticking. There are a lot of great options for non-stick sprays that are clean and healthy. You can find some with olive oil, avocado oil, and even coconut oil.

Be sure to store any leftover egg bites in the refrigerator. You can even freeze them. Freeze the egg bites on a baking tray first. Then store in a good air-tight container.

They can keep for 3-6 months in the freezer. Simply reheat in the toaster oven or microwave when you want a quick snack.

Made these today, they taste good and I like the simplicity. However, removing them from a non-stick muffin tin that had been oiled as suggested was a failure. Has anyone had success with a liner or a vegetable spray?

Have you oiled the edges too? It shouldn't be too much of an issue when it's all oiled up, worked well for me.
